    Very touristic, but you get a lot of fun. The museum is very detailed and interactive. Even if the ticket is not that cheap, to visit once is worth it.

    Spent 2hours inside, no queue at 5pm. Nice retro about how ppl lived back then. But tons of ppl live in similar flats now in Ukraine. Chech a Trabant inside and take it for a virtual ride! :)

    Great museum, despite the touristy crowd. Interactive, individual, interesting. Worth the pricey entrance. Not to be missed - the new apartment and it’s tv with original DDR programming.

    Be sure to take good time for your visit! I strolled around for about three hours and was totally fascinated about everything. Also prebook a guided city tour if you have the time and foresight.

    Nice museum at Berlin; shows you the history of Germany and how Germans lived before. The German house was the most interesting part of museum.

    The living room & kitchen recreation is really cool. You can take the books and board games out from the shelves to have a look inside or watch original TV programs.

    Most interactive museum in Berlin! It shows the life of german people in communism, but so so nice. It should be on your list if you come to Berlin :)

    A super informative and hands on museum . Gives you a full feeling of life behind the wall and all that it entailed. Hands on and mostly wheelchair accessible.

    Lovely museum about life in East Germany during the Cold War. Very immersive and insightful, and you get to visit a typical flat from that era.

    Buy the ticket online and skip the queue! Try to find a time when it's not totally overcrowded, then you can enjoy the interactive parts. Otherwise it's a hassle to squeeze past everybody else...

    Very fun museum with a lot of interactive exhibits. Not too big either so perfect if you have 2 hours to kill. Also, get 2 Euros off for checking in!

    Such a waste of time for £7 pp. it s so small and there is so few to see inside. I recommend everyone to go for Forum exhibition in Leipzig, it s also for free!

    I really liked this museum, also because of the interaction. However, lots of people in a small space isn't ideal. Eat something in the DDR restaurant afterwards to complete the experience!

    Although the museum does not contain the most exciting stuff, it succeeds in providing great knowledge regarding that time not that long ago where the city was split into two.

    Probably one of the most interactive museums of the world, it's an amazing way to know what life was for berliners on the east side

    Interactive museum about the former GDR (socialist east Germany), worth checking out to see objects from the era & to learn about life in the GDR

    When I saw it, it was really crowded, but still really interesting. It takes more than two ours if you read everything

    One of my least favourite museums during my trip to Berlin. Far too crowded so I couldn't actually read any of the exhibits.

    This doesn't feel like a museum at all. Lots of small activities to do. It's very fun and worth checking if you have an hour

    If you have checked in before buying tickets,you can get a 2 euro discount. You have to insist that the app you have used to check in is Foursquare, otherwise they tend to say that it is not :D

    The exhibits are informative and shed a tangible light over life in east Germany during the Cold War. However, the museum has a poor layout and feels overcrowded.
